Google in the US has created a doodle specifically to mark the 50th anniversary of American civil rights leader Martin Luther King’s ‘I have a dream’ speech.

The doodle, which at the time of writing can only be accessed via an IP address within the US, shows King addressing a crowd with the words from his iconic speech in the background.

Martin Luther King delivered his famous speech against racism on 28 August 1963 and it was considered one of the most poignant and pivotal moments of the American civil rights movement.

King was assassinated almost five years later on 4 April 1968 at Memphis Tennessee.
